Three Cheers for No-Ears product reviews

Once there was an elephant whose ears were so small, all the other elephants called him No-Ears. No-Ears is not a happy elephant.

Constantly teased for being different, it's not until the old grand-daddy bull elephant finds himself in a spot of bother that No-Ears discovers that being different can be an advantage!

A charming, short story that the little ones will love... the very little ones will probably only appreciate the bright colours and excellent artwork, while slightly older ones will like the 'warm fuzzy' ending to the story.

I have to admit, the artwork was brilliant, with great detail and plenty of 'mood' to it. Deborah Hinde did an amazing job and the images suit the story perfectly.

As with all books aimed at this age group, it is VERY light on written content, and that's perfect for the target audience... but clever parents with smarter/older kids could easily add extra to the story, or do 'where is the...'/'what colour is this...' type activities as they read along.

Overall, a delightful bedtime read for the wee ones which is well laid out to help those learning to read.

This book has a very 'Ugly Duckling' theme with quite a traditional storyline about an elephant whose ears are so small that he is bullied by the other elephants and they call him 'No-ears' and refuse to play with him.

So other jungle friends help him come up with creative ideas to make his ears look larger, eg. feathers, butterflies etc. and the story has a nice ending where the elephant finds having smaller ears can be useful after all.

Something I didn't like about this story was the entire way through he is referred to as 'No-ears' (The name given to him by the bullies) and the book never mentions his name.

The kids liked this story and my son pointed out it was 'Like Ruldolph'.

Product reviews for listing 2885: Goosebumps HorrorLand - Slappy New Year -  Author: R. L. Stein

Product image for Goosebumps HorrorLand - Slappy New Year"Did you think Slappy here was talking?"

Ray Gordon loves to scare his younger brother, Brandon. It's not hard considering Brandon is terrified of everything - loud noises, rollercoasters, and especially the wooden dummy, Slappy, that Ray got from the HorrorLand gift shop.

In order to throw his big New Year's Eve party, Ray's parents make him promise to leave Brandon alone. But strange, mean-spirited things ... more...
